Covid-19 Ongoing Situation

PLEASE NOTE that we will be meeting up in person once again from September 2022. Our new programme for the coming season can be viewed on our Events page, or is also available from our Help page. 

We will be holding our annual Print Exhibition this year at the Babylon Gallery at Ely riverside, from 27 September to 9 October, and the Gallery is open from 12 noon until 4pm daily (except Monday). A wide variety of prints will be available to purchase, both framed and unframed. Entry is free of charge, so please come along and have a look!

General info

Ely Photographic Club is a local friendly club founded in 1974 which now has almost 50 members, who have a wide range of photographic experience, from beginner to expert. 

We provide a varied and interesting programme of competitions, presentations, workshops, training and social events in order to support our members and encourage them to improve their photographic skills. We also now have agreements with local farmers to access their land for the purposes of taking wildlife images.  

The club normally meet on Wednesday evenings from 7.30pm to 9.30pm at Ely College, and the season runs from September through to the end of May. We also now run a monthly Advanced Photo Group on the first Thursday of each month, run by one of our experienced club members, which is designed to help you to improve your photographic and post-processing skills.  The club also now has open and closed Facebook groups, as well as Twitter and Instagram accounts where we can share our images. From September when we resume meeting in person again at the college there are excellent facilities and free car parking.

We very much welcome new members, and we sometimes arrange informal meetings where you can meet up with us – please keep an eye on our Events page for these. If you would like to see what the club is about, we would be very pleased for you to join us for up to 3 meetings as a guest without any commitment to join the club, although we do charge a guest fee of £3 per meeting when we are meeting at the College. Our annual membership fees for the coming season will be £55pa.
